Tips In Pool That Will Improve Your Game Fast

Tips In Pool That Will Improve Your Game Fast

Today I want to show you how to improve your
game immediately!
Well – in this video I am going to show you
four tipps that will raise your game very fast.
But before we jump into it I wanna show you
As you may noticed I recently didn’t upload
new videos.
And that’s because I was working on something for you!
I developed a small playing ability test.
This test will check your game in:
Straight Shooting
Positional Play
Kicking & Banking
Defensive Game
and Breaking
The whole test is available as an eBook.
After you finished the test you will get a
score between zero and a thousand points.
From this score your rank between D- to a
maximum A+ wil be calculated.
And that’s not everything.
You will also get access to your personal
space on my website.
This is the result of my current attempt,
which means I am a B ranked player.
With this diagram you immediately see what
the strong and weak parts of your game are.
This graph shows you your previous attempt
to compare if you improved.
And another nice feature: You can actually
compare with all the other players that already
did that test.
Here wee see that we are 20% above the average
So with access to this personal page you can
track and compare the weak and strong parts
of our game.
You can get access to that on my Patreon “Check
my Game” tier.
And if you want to, for three extra dollars
I will give you personalized drills and advice
to remove those weeks parts.
But now lets finally jump into todays lesson.
Before I give you the first tip on the way
– I want you to watch me playing this shot
very carefully.
What did we notice?
Well: I got nowhere near to a nice shot on
the 9 Ball.
But why?
Let’s watch it again:
I am doing my prestrokes
and here is the mistake.
My backswing was way to fast.
And because of that very fast backswing, I
lost a lot of accuarcy and didn’t hit the
cue ball where I intended to.
So the first huge tip is: Slow down your backswing.
There is no need to move your arm backwards
that fast.
The whole shot, all the energy just comes
from the final forward stroke.
So slow down your backswing and you won’t
choke on balls that often, you will have a
lot more accuracy, and to be honest: Everything
just looks way more controlled.
I will also provide a link of Snooker players
playing extreme draw shots in the description.
There you can see that principle very clear.
Again: Watch what I am doing here:
I just had to play a stop shot.
But I am hitting the ball way too hard.
So the second tip is.
Play balls only as hard as required.
This will have two advantgaes.
First: less power means more accuracy in your
And second: If you hit softer, the ball has
a higher change to drop, even when you’re
not hitting the pocket dead center.
But don’t get me wrong.
That doesn’t mean that you have to slow roll
the balls.
For example the nine ball here is much safer,
if you hit it with a form stroke instead of
rolling it in.
But: dont’ pound the balls if you don’t have
Again: Watch carefully.
This is a mistake especially beginners do
a lot, but even advanced players do this from
time to time.
And even I catch myself from time to time
doing this.
So this tip is called: stand up!
Make your plan while your standing and don’t
adjust your aim or spin while you’re down
at the shoot.
Adjusting spin will change the behaviour of
the cueball, for example deflection.
So your aim is off.
And if you now also adjust your aiming while
down, your whole body moves and twists and
you won’t be able to play a straight shot.
So if you don’t feel comfortable, if you need
to change the amount spin, if you need to
change your aiming, or if you just don’t feel
well and a hundred percent convinced of the
shot – stand up!
It’s a small thing, but will definetly raise
your game.
And the last tip for you is the right eye
That means: Looking at the object ball before
When shooting a ball, you want to bring your
cue exactly towards the point you’re aiming to.
And if you look at the object ball or the point
on the rail where you want to hit, it will
be much easier for you to bring your cue exactly
towards that point.
Of course, double check, switch from object
ball to cueball, but the last few seconds
before you’re pulling the trigger, you have
to look at your target.
This where four small tips that are really
easy to integrate into your game.
The only thing required for that is discipline.
And if you do those things, I promise your
game will improve very fast.
That’s it for today.

  1. Great video as always! But I do have a random question: who do many players tap their fingers of their bridge hand right before shooting? I catch myself doing it occasionally too

  2. You didn't put Snooker players draw shotting in the description =O. Good video though. Helped give direction to what I need to work on.

  3. My biggest problem is look at the cue ball before I shoot. I try to look at the object ball but always get worried and panic before looking back at the cue ball

  4. Very solid advice to players. I struggle with standing up rather than changing while down the most. In my defense, if I do what Ko Pin Ye does I may have to shoot myself

  5. i love your vids, but i do not need you to tell me I suck. I already know that… and your better than a B+

  6. I also noticed that you're using an open bridge and you have no control over your stick. Your stick should not fly out of your left hand like that after striking the cue ball that is amateur.

  7. Thanks, these were very helpful. The most helpful was the right eye pattern. I had looked at the cueball at the last moment and this change really helped me.

  8. Excellent tips as always. The first one is something I have to work on regularly. On a side not, what software program do you use to make the animated text and pics or basically the slides?

  9. I thought I knew everything about pool until I stumbled upon this channel. Thanks a lot for teaching us ways to improve our game!

  10. People these are like starter tips, real tips would be more like how to find a shot, wether you should try a risky pocket or play it safe, how to curve, backspin and jump, or even how much a cue matters. Pool takes a lot of skill and practice

  11. Sharivari My game was stuck in a rut I was not improving I had to do something, I went back to center ball top and low no side spin just speed and I copied Steve Davis' stance head right on top of cue and open bridge it felt foreign at first but I kept with it, and my game improved now it feels like the only way to play my potting went up a few levels in about a week of solid hard work 6 to 8 hours a session, I worked on straight cue action nothing else for days shooting straight thru the white and center hits making the cue ball come back to the stick Sir your videos have motivated me to improve thanks Sharivari………

  12. If you want to really learn ALL aspects of billiards play straight pool. When you can run 50 you will be amazed at how much the game pushes your learning curve up significantly.

  13. Play straight pool and snooker if you want to move up the curve as quickly as possible. His comment about hitting the easy as possible is a good one and hitting the cue ball too hard is probably the biggest mistake lesser players make. right behind this mistake shot selection is a close second.

  14. I always watch these videos and think to myself, it would be nice to play on awesome tables. But most of us play on bar tables.

  15. Thank you. I have been pulling out my hair and about ready to quit because I am so angry and frustrated. My game has gone way down hill in last two months. I miss shots even a beginner would not miss. I have to try the back swing idea.

  16. Nice hint on the backswing. As a snookerplayer I often see pool players doing exact that mistkae for whatever reason. Backswing and stroke are 2 movements, not one.

  17. I've been watching many teachers. Sharivari is one of the best. I am now watching only his teaching videos. Let's see what happens!

  18. Your back arm is to stiff. Loosen up your grip and let the cue stick lay in your hand. If U grip U twist. If U slide U glide! Your feet are all wrong too.. This guy can't teach U anything good.. He is trying to make money on the web.. I make mine on the table. 🙂

  19. The real reason is because you should never use an open bridge for a top spin shot. There is very little cue ball control. You should not be lifting the cue in the air immediately after the shot with your left hand either. The cue should stay in or on your bridge hand during the whole shot.

  20. Left handed brought me here. Good tips to remember – never really thought about it. Oh, I was looking for Billiards. Ha!

  21. @Sharivari,
    I never knew u had Fast back swing until i saw a video of my self.
    Ca you put one more video and explain more about first point.

  22. On the first shot why do you need to go 4 rails use draw and a little left and hit only 2 rails and make the CB to the opposite side of the OB from my view CB will be left of OB!

  23. People need to realize that even at a 350 to 400 rating that is unbelievable in terms of the layperson. Anyone in the 6 or 7 hundreds is definitely professional

  24. Well, You look like your about to break the stick with your grip loosen up, don't use an open bridge and stay down why you shoot. You stand up like a rocket. And follow through just a bit more. But mainly you pull up really really fast.

    Now you probably think im no body but trust me when I say what I just said is very genuine and will definitely help your game

  25. Hi Derek,

    Please find attached the quote for the snooker tables as needed for Tuesday.

    Could l ask you to contact Alex (his contact details are in the quote) to confirm that the RSL will go ahead and he can advise when he is able do the job.
